Paul Clement feels Swansea have turned the corner in their battle for Premier League survival.

Swansea ended a run of six games without a win by beating Stoke 2-0 last weekend, but remain in the relegation zone with four games remaining.

Clement's side visit Manchester United on Sunday and are currently two points adrift of Hull, who are away to Southampton tomorrow.

"I am very confident that we will stay up," Swansea head coach Clement said.

"Maybe I would not have been if we had not got that good result and good performance against Stoke.

"I think it gives us a lot of confidence that we have turned a corner after a difficult period.

"We had not been performing that well going into the Stoke game and that run lasted much longer than we would have liked.

"But the players showed that when the anxiety is high they can still play very well.

"Myself and the players are very confident we can get valuable points in the last four home games."

Wins for Hull and Swansea last weekend have left Burnley looking anxiously behind them.

"I do believe it will go to the last game, but we cannot rely on anybody else.

"We are playing Manchester United this weekend and we cannot focus on what other teams are doing. I can only influence my team and we can only focus on ourselves and putting in a good performance against United."
